How to Add Hyper-V Host to VBR

In this page you will learn how to add a Hyper-V standalone host to Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure with PowerShell.

How to Add Hyper-V Host to VBR Note:

If a Hyper-V host is a part of a cluster, it is recommended that you add a Hyper-V cluster instead of a standalone Hyper-V host. To learn more on how to add a Hyper-V cluster, see How to Add Hyper-V Cluster to VBR.

To add a Hyper-V standalone host with PowerShell, perform the following steps:

  1. Run Add-VBRHvHost.
  2. Specify a name of Hyper-V host, which you want to add to Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. This name can be a full DNS name or IP address of Hyper-V host.
  3. Specify the user name and password for authenticating with Hyper-V host.
  4. Optionally specify the port for the connection to Hyper-V standalone host. If not specified, the default port 443 will be used. Add the description of Hyper-V host if needed.

PS C:\PS> $tenant = Get-VBRCloudTenant -Name "ABC Company"

PS C:\PS> $quota = $tenant.resources[0]

PS C:\PS> $newname = Set-VBRCloudTenantResource -CloudTenantResource $quota -RepositoryFriendlyName “ABC Cloud Repository New Name”

PS C:\PS> Set-VBRCloudTenant -CloudTenant $tenant -Resource $newname
